Our website is currently under construction, this temporary page provides high level information about our District. We look forward to sharing more of our unique story with you in the near future!

The Waikato district has much to offer. It is strategically located in the centre of the North Island's prosperous 'golden triangle'. It is linked from north to south, east to west by the Waikato Expressway and major rail links to two major seaports. Our people provide a highly-trained, resident workforce and have easy access to some of the world's best training and research institutions.
And while the Waikato is just a short drive from two major cities, our residents enjoy idyllic lifestyles in some of New Zealand's most beautiful and historic locations.
